Where is this?

Hi, I came across a photo of fjord as in the link below.

Can someone recognise where this place is? Thank you.

It looks like somewhere in the Hardangerfjord area - sometime in the month of May when the fruit trees are in bloom and still snow on the peaks.

Could be in the Sognefjord area also hard to tell.

Thank you for the prompt reply. I have the same feeling but am not sure which village is that? Could it be Lofthus?

Is Hardangerfjord the only fjord area where you have apple orchards? Are apple trees usually blossoming in early, mid or end May? And, the apple trees which I see in Italy blossom only with white/pink flowers without green leaves. But from the photos I searched on the internet, apple trees in Hardangerfjord seem to blossom together with a lot of green leaves. Is my observation correct? Thank you.

There are plenty of fruit trees in bloom and snow covered peeks in the Sognefjord area also during spring.

When the trees blossom depends on the weather each year. It is in May, but we cannot say if it is early, mid or end of May.
